This programme is provided for children from 8 years old upwards and for adults of all ages.
There are two main components of this programme.
Davis Orientation Counselling: We show the individual how to capitalise on their visual style of learning and thinking and how to use it to overcome their learning difficulties.
Davis Symbol Mastery: Using clay (plasticine), individuals work with the alphabet, punctuation marks and 'trigger' words (the short abstract words), frequently encountered in reading. These words cause problems when the dyslexic individual cannot form a mental picture to go along with them.
Through Symbol Mastery, the individual makes a three-dimensional clay model of the meaning of each word, together with a model of the letters of the words. With this approach, learning is permanent.
